Awhile back we had the joy of helping with the Nebraska Families for Homeschooling conference. It was a family conference in it's first year and ended up being such a wonderful weekend!! 

The theme this year was VALOR!
It was set during WW2 and everyone went all out!! For the majority of the time we would go between large groups that would have singing, memorizing Bible verses and a full drama to the small groups where they would have a lesson that tied into what they saw in the drama. And then they would play games and have other activities. There were a whole lot of other aspects to the weekend, but that is the general idea. Parents did some of the activities with their kids, but spent most of their time over having parent themed sessions.

There was a lot of 50's style and military costumes going around which added so much to the atmosphere!

Elizabeth was in charge of making all of the food for the staff during the weekend

Stephen helped with the parent side of the conference and then helped with some of the kids activities like this shooting range with marshmallow guns

Hannah led the large groups and was the staff coordinator

Susanna & Alaythia were in charge of all of the costumes and props for the full scale 8 part drama

Nathanael was a teacher on one of the teams as well as helping lead songs in large group

And Charissa helped with whatever needed done

The main theme of VALOR was that our choices, whether good or bad, big or small, have a huge impact on not only our own lives, but the lives of the people we come into contact with as well. Tomorrows battles are won or lost by the choices we are making today! It starts with our thoughts, which become our attitudes, which become our actions. Can't wait till next year's conference!

"Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit."
Matthew 7:17

(Just in case you were concerned, everyone was completely healthy before, during and after the conference which we are so thankful for!)
